LSU’s Morris Claiborne has a learning disability. This could be why he scored a four on the Wonderlic test at the NFL Scouting Combine. Feel like a jerk for laughing at his score for the past 24 hours? Good. Because I do too.

Every college that recruited Claiborne knew of the learning disability, which affects his ability to read. “Claiborne’s test score was NOT a true indicator of his intelligence,” Gabriel wrote. “He can and does learn.”
